1. Flimsy construction - the lugs in the battery cover snap off easily.
2. There is no way to lock the buttons when it is swtched off so when you get it out of your bag you discover it has been on all day and there is no battery juice left
3. Even when left switched off it eats batteries like a maniac
4. Reception is poor - it fades in and out on the train (my previous DAB radio had a good reception so I know it's not to do with coverage)
You get what you pay for so don't take this cheap option - I did and I wish I hadn't. I'm a martyr to me Northern roots.
Unfortunately the set can not get the station - despite clear reception on my other DAB radios in the house
The front of the radio looked marked & used
However the makers say they have no more in stock
If it was not a birthday present I would have sent back for a refund
As it is I don't use it - still in the box
Here's a quick run through of my experience with this product;
The build quality is as poor as I've seen in any piece of consumer electronics. Everything about it feels cheap and flimsy. The rubber buttons have a tendency to stick underneath the casing when pressed, and need to be picked out with a fingernail. Each button takes about three presses to register, and there's no sensation that they have actually been pushed - you can't sense whether they need a firm or light press as they work so intermittently. The battery casing is unbelievably brittle and felt like it would snap each time it was opened - I'm not at all surprised to hear from other reviewers that it broke on first opening.
It refused to turn on several times.
It wouldn't find certain stations - TalkSport notably, my Dads favourite station - even when in the same room of the house as another DAB radio that found them without problems.
On the times it did turn on the display would occasionally have lines of blank pixels running horizontally through the words.
After two days of tentatively trying to make it work as it should, we gave up on it. I returned it as it just wasn't fit for purpose. (The eBay seller, the excellent HughesDirect, sent a courier to collect the package on a day of my choosing. Fantastic customer service for such a low priced product)
I know it's only a £20-odd product but that's not really the point. I'd happily pay three or four times that much for an equivalent product that just worked as it should and didn't feel so throwaway. I'm now trying to find a replacement portable DAB, but I'll be putting in the time researching and reading other customer reviews this time around. I will never touch a Goodmans product again.
